GUBI’s first ceramic tables, taking advantage of single-fired stoneware’s robustness, resilience, and unique organic aesthetic.
The versatile Carmel tables have vivid color options, high-shine glaze, and richly textured finishes, combined with organic contours, which give the Carmel tables a distinctive look, playful character, and almost creature-like appeal. The Carmel tables can stand alone as feature pieces or be combined in clusters with others in different sizes and colors. Small tables are available in Rock Red or Pacific Blue; medium in Clam White, and large in Midnight Black, with a randomized crystal finish applied to black and white tables.
Designer and Creative Director Thomas Lykke (born 1971) trained as a fashion designer in Copenhagen and San Francisco before turning his eye to the design industry where he worked as Interiors Editor at Wallpaper* Magazine from 2000-2003 before setting up his own design company, OEO Studio, in Copenhagen in 2003.
OEO Studio always seeks to instil a sense of necessity, one that reflects our belief that great design is driven by passion and shaped by the vision to make a difference in a relevant, natural and respectful way. Our approach to design is holistic. To OEO Studio, communication is just as important as the product itself. Indeed, truth lies in the totality of the approach. OEO Studio seeks to touch and inspire people on an emotional level, to create engaging design universes with a cosmopolitan outlook.
"We are creative people with a unique and refined sense of the DNA and personality of a brand: its heritage, qualities and core essence. We have developed masterly skills at taking a brand and bringing it to centre stage. We strive to create products that can last for generations for their outstanding qualities and aesthetics. Finally, we are strong believers in craftsmanship, tactile materials and the lived-in experience when creating meaningful products and ambiances" says Thomas Lykke.
OEO Studio has created award-winning designs for a broad spectrum of discerning clients, from the most respected centuries-old crafts companies to corporate brand producers of high-quality products, including Georg Jensen, Dinesen, Kadeau, Takashimaya, Brdr. Krüger, Leica, Japan Handmade, Stellar Works, Hosoo and Sony HQ.
At GUBI, we're on a continual quest. A journey. Fuelled by our passion to discover overlooked icons from the past and future icons in the making, we've made a distinctive name for ourselves in the international design arena as a dynamic design force to be reckoned with.
